 Dear Dr. "Stefan Roesler

EMail: sroesler@mail.cern.ch

 

As mentioned in your previous letter, we have modified the Input construction file( Fluka Code), according to your suggestions.

 

When we used the following assumtion as you mentioned to us:

-> Please note that there is no explicit recoil production on carbon. Thus

-> (after having removed the air) when assigning hydrogen to your target you
-> get exactly 50% neutron and 50% proton produced per primary as it should
-> be. When assigning poly to the target, the neutron fraction goes up also
-> due to the fact that there is no recoil treatment for scattering on carbon.

 

After modifying we get the attached results, and with this assumption we are getting the fast neutron results, similar like the

thermal neutron behavior, (as the results do not match with GEANT4 results),  which looks strange.

Could you please have a look into these new results and the input Fluka code., and please guide us, how we can further modify it and get the correct results by FLUKA?

 

with best wishes,

 

 Dr. M. Jamil & Kim Hyeon Ki

Dear Dr. M. Jami

Before discussing physics there are a two technicalities to clarify:

- your poly is surrounded by a 100m radius *air* sphere. Of course, the
scoring of secondaries that you refer to is mostly secondaries created in
this air volume, not in the poly

- your beam is aligned in z while I think you want to have it aligned with
x (the coordinate in which your target is 0.03cm thick). Just by chance
you get also interactions in the target since the beam is 2x2cm wide..

Please note that there is no explicit recoil production on carbon. Thus
(after having removed the air) when assigning hydrogen to your target you
get exactly 50% neutron and 50% proton produced per primary as it should
be. When assigning poly to the target, the neutron fraction goes up also
due to the fact that there is no recoil treatment for scattering on
carbon.

Cheers
Stefan
